Dive The Knife Rock (www.DiveSriLanka.com)
Nilavali, Trincomalee
By Dharshana Jayawardena.

Depth: 15 Meters.

The Knife Rock is just south of Pigeon Island. For us, this site has always beheld an aura of eerieness; an unexplained dark quality which exudes gloom and mystery. Adding to this effect are what appears to be two long rocky man made slabs lying on the sea bed and the blurred silvery reflections of pelagics lurking afar.
